Bottle. The look is darker, off white head, and clear. The smell is cherry, peach candy, sour, wood, interesting, and lactic. The taste is tart, peach, sour, fruit, wood, funk, and good.

Corked and caged 750 ml bottle from Tipples. Pours brown with a half finger khaki colored head. Aroma of green apples, wood, balsamic, some interesting booze notes, twigs and leaves and vegetal notes. Interesting I guess but a little strange. Flavor is light sour black cherries with a hefty bit of dry oakiness, some booze that I assume is the cognac, and a lingering mellow cherry apple vanilla flavor left on the palate. Fruity notes begin coming out from the cognac with additional sips. Medium plus mouthfeel for a sour, with low carbonation--but not flat by any means. A very good sour in the red/brown style.

Great beer! Almost like a peachy La Foile. Lots of ripe stone fruits in the aroma as well as some mild sweet chocolate & malt. Very complex stone fruit flavor, very intense ripe peach & nectarine. The flavor finishes with tart unripe stone fruit.

bytemesis (3486) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear ruby mahogany - beautiful. Small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing in its wake. Aroma is very vinous, red wine, some Brett, oak, lemons, tart cherries. Flavor is initially lightly sweet, drying out quickly to a light tartness with just a touch of funk. Lots of oaky, vinous notes - I would swear this was a red wine and not a cognac treatment. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Very very nice beer.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a nice brown color, with a tan head. Flavor is sour, puckering but not overbearing with fruits, cherries, balsamic, hints of cognac and oak. Perfect balance between sour, funk, and flavor. Amazing!

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Quite excellent. Fruity with a hint of sweetness, touch of cognac, finish is tart but certainly not overwhelming. Kinda has a blackberry thing going on. One of the best dark American sours I’ve had.

Hazy red brown light head. Sour red grain smells. Sour grain tart fades to a light smooth finish.

Cory (350) - , California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. I enjoyed this a great deal. Aroma of nuts, cereal, cheese, with some citrus in there. Full bodied and smooth across the palate with a dry finish. Taste is tart with earthy finish from the yeast. It was good but I think it will be better with age.

marcus (6769) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a sour treacle aroma. There is a moderately sour brown ale flavor with lots of oak an a warm alcohol trail. Very delicious.
